LGBT Bristol
Description

Who we are:
LGBT Bristol is the brand name of the Bristol Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Forum. The Forum was originally established in 1994 and became Registered Charity No. 1098085. Currently our main funders are Bristol City Council.
What we do:
We challenge homophobia and transphobia in Bristol and the wider community.
We circulate and publicise information about local and national LGBT support groups.
We promote services, events and social groups that are targeted at LGBT communities in Bristol and the surrounding area.
We provide a platform for Forum members and LGBT communities to have voice and influence in local consultations and policy making.
We work with statutory agencies (Police, Fire Service, NHS, Local Authorities, etc) to ensure they comply with all equality guidelines.

Our aims:
That Bristol City should be a place where LGBT people can live free from hatred, prejudice, persecution and discrimination – and where they are entitled to equal treatment, respect and feel valued for their contributions.
That schools ensure that they provide a supportive and welcoming environment for all LGBT young people and children of LGBT families and that they are free from all forms of bullying.
That service providers recognise the particular needs of the growing number of older LGBT people – for help in care with ill health, disability, bereavement and isolation.
That Bristol’s LGBT communities and venues respect all strands of all minority groups and are supportive of LGBT people who identify with more than one equality group (eg. asian disabled gay man, black lesbian single parent).
